What am I Doing Here?! Being First in the Family at College [available seats!]

Kim McAloney & Janet Nishihara, F 10-11:50
CRN: 15241

For those of us whose parents did not attend college, navigating the experience can be an exciting and daunting experience.  For first generation students, it can seem like everyone else knows what they are doing and that they all have a clear plan for how to succeed in college.  This class will explore advice from first generation college students who have been where you are and is taught by instructors who themselves were first generation college students.  We’ll discuss advice that others have shared, hear from campus guest speakers who were first generation when they started college, all with the goal of helping you find your path to success in college.  You’ll leave with a community of support and tools to navigate college.
